Students have long requested more formal opportunities to focus on the business of sports while at The Wharton School. We introduce students to the Sports Business Industry through:
- Supporting student-run sports business focused clubs at the MBA and undergraduate levels
- Sponsoring sports-specific conferences, speakers, career panels, receptions and forums to raise exposure to leaders and key topics in the sports business industry
- Facilitating recruiting efforts in this highly competitive industry by working hand-in-hand with career services, companies and alumni
- Bringing in executives and high-level sports industry administrators either as guest lecturers or for stand-alone events
Undergraduate and MBA students can join their respective clubs to further explore the sports industry.
Students gain exposure into the sports business industry and beyond through courses taught at The Wharton School.
SPORTS CONSULTING PROJECTS
